Key holding services

Key holding services can be set up with professional security companies that will attend and check your premises in response to your fire or intruder alarm being activated.

Whilst there is no legal requirement to establish this type of arrangement, it is important that anyone responding to alarm call outs are not exposed to a risk of violence. The police will usually require someone to check the premises before they will attend to investigate.

Responding to out of hours alarm activations is not only inconvenient for employees or church members, it is potentially dangerous, so insurers will recommend that places of worship have a keyholding service in place.
